What's the difference between a thriving Christ-centered church
that's saturating its city with the Gospel, and other churches that
love the Lord, but are plateaued or declining? A key part of the
answer lies in identifying new wineskins for ministry, ones that
can earn a fresh hearing for the Gospel with spiritually thirsty
generations. In a fluid, rapidly-changing world, every church
struggles with finding fresh ways to win a hearing for Christ with
the current generation. What worked 20, 10 or even 5 years ago too
often loses its effectiveness as our world experiences a tsunami of
cultural change, especially among the younger rising generations.
Church leaders want to know not only how people are responsive
today, but also why. They want to understand how leading churches
are pouring the living water of Jesus Christ through new wineskins,
and how some of the ideas, along with their underlying values,
could work for them as well. Looking underneath Liquid Church's
phenomenal growth from a dozen people to more than 5,000 weekly
attenders in 12 years, this book explains how this vibrant church
has pioneered a number of ministry shifts that has resulted in
strong cross-generational appeal. How does a church effectively
saturate its community with the good news about Jesus without
diluting the truth and power of the gospel? Lucas and Bird look at
seven spiritual currents that churches can leverage to reposition
themselves for community impact while holding fast to the timeless,
unchanging truth of Christ. These shifts reflect national trends as
well, and the authors include examples of how other churches are
doing the same thing in different cultural contexts.
